Murrieta Hot Springs Resort has announced it is now accepting first reservations for Murrieta Hot Springs Resort in Murrieta, California, which is set to open in February 2024. The newly reimagined resort is a tribute to Murrieta's historic location in Southern California during the beginning of the 20th century. 

Reinvisioned by lead architect Chris Campbell of RQTEX in partnership with award-winning Los Angeles design firm Omgivning, the restoration showcases original architecture, with each building expressing a distinctly California architectural history. Spanning 46 acres, it will feature 174 rooms, from deluxe suites to double queen rooms with views of an on-site lake, and starting rates ranging from $399 - $899.

The resort created a geothermal water wellness program centered around four core Vitality elements: Revitalization, Activity, Nutrition and Sleep, all rooted in the power of geothermal waters and time-tested, science-based traditions.

For the first time in a generation, the coveted waters that once gave Murrieta Hot Springs Resort the reputation of the best Health Resort in California will be open to the public, with more than 50 geothermal pools, water features and cold plunges. The ancient alkaline geothermal waters are an essential element for guest vitality and contain a unique combination of nine minerals: Sulfate, chloride, boron, calcium, lithium, potassium, sodium, silica and bicarbonate.

Dr. Coplin said, “There is a direct antioxidant effect, an enhanced anti-inflammatory effect, and greater pain-relieving experiences from the minerality of the water at Murrieta Hot Springs Resort. The water's heat, the pressure of the water on the skin, and the minerals in the water all provide specific detoxifying effects by increasing your body's ability to do what it naturally does with the added benefit of resetting the nervous system, leaving you feeling rested, vital and whole."

Guests are encouraged to take advantage of Bath Hall hydrothermal experiences that include a steam room, warm pools, and an adjacent cold plunge, allowing guests to reap the benefits of contrast bathing to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms. From there, they can ascend to the terra thermal mud loft and panoramic sauna while taking in expansive views of the resort and region and enjoying a rooftop sundeck.

Spa treatments are inspired by the minerals in the geothermal water, abundant agricultural region and mud bathing history. Revitalizing wellness activities, available with overnight guest stays, include aqua yoga, aqua sound baths, meditation, restorative yoga and restful recharge. Guests will also have access to the resort's world-class Fitness Center featuring a program of group fitness classes that focus on aerobic and strength training for powerful results at all skill levels.

All of the property's rooms are thoughtfully curated and greatly emphasize the restorative power of sleep, featuring a specialty sleep tray with items to help facilitate a good night's sleep and educational materials and sleep techniques to use and take home, created by Dr. Coplin, to offer uncompromised rest. There are also Sleep Rooms, specifically optimized for a better night's sleep, featuring Bryte Balance beds with connected technology, a select pillow menu, blackout curtains, lighting controls, temperature regulation and an ambient soundscapes machine.

Sharon Holtz, vice president of wellness at Murrieta Hot Springs Resort, said, "We are dedicated to preserving the heritage of Murrieta Hot Springs Resort while simultaneously adding new chapters to its storied history. We'll introduce exceptional facilities, restorative spa and wellness experiences, and a range of offerings–all centered around promoting vitality through the revitalizing qualities of geothermal mineral water and Southern California quintessence. Here, visitors can genuinely be in the moment and step away from the daily routines of life to focus on their well-being."
